Tail Of The Dragon

"Tail of the Dragon at Deals Gap" with 318 curves in 11 miles. It is really fun for the motorcycles and classic cars, all of the curves there are a camera crew waiting for your picture ...but it is fun for every one. Unless you don't do sharp curves? This pull off restaurant and gift shop ... was a great place to take in some sights.
If you can not read the sign on the last shot "Caution: Watch For Falling Parts From The Tree Of Shame" ... these are parts from falling motorcycles.
I am almost positive that part of this road is in Tennessee and part in North Carolina ...but I don't have the picture of the sign and it is to curvy to take that picture. Yes, we did pull over for several bikes just so they can go on wizzy by. Some of those bikers are nuts they way they drive that road!!! Are they drunk or what??!?! Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take care. Be Well & Be Blessed. Beth ( ;

Cades Cove, Tennessee

Have you ever visited "Cades Cove", Tennessee, within the Great Smoky Mtns.? 
It is an 11 mile loop. Such gorgeous views, no matter sun or rain. It was a bit blue, bits of rain here and there. There were lots of photographers trying to grab a great shot. It was fun to see. Every one was enjoying the views.
If you recall Gatlinburg had been through recent fires, so it was quite sad to see all the destruction. I sure hope that all who lost items will soon find a way to rebuild, etc. Fun to think about they way folks use to travel in the olden days. Hope you are well today and enjoy your visit. Thanks for stopping by. Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( ;

Kerr Lake, North Carolina

Hey there!! Thanks for stopping by today, We took a quick getaway over a long weekend in the end of April, 1st day of May to enjoy Kerr Lake Recreation Area County Line Campground. If you know much about that area of southern central of Virginia into North Carolina ...there are several campground put into or near the John H. Kerr Dam & Reservoir ...they had a ton of recent rain so the campground we were going to stay in was not well do all that rain. But this one as you can see had several campsite under water. It is wild to see what water can do. The hubby thought it was funny to be rowing along and see a picnic table under your kayak, hope thing will dry out okay soon enough. 
If you a looking for a great book, check out "The Hale Brothers" by: Kathyrn Andrews... such a great read ...I had a chance to read that series while on this trip. If you are an avid reader like myself, you find the down times to fit in reading. While the hubby is napping, while relaxing and enj…

LIFE update

Sometimes it is just nice to show you what I've been up to. The weekend of March 17-19 ... it was a quiet & calm March weekend. The hubs and I jumped in the car and went to new kayakin' stop here in Virginia ... got a few rowin' moments in before a thunderstorm popped up. Rumbling away, we decided, we best be getting our butt out of the water, ASAP!! Wild how those thunderstorms come out of nowhere!! It was a gorgeous day, only took my Iphone. 


I made a homemade Angel Food cake. Have you ever had to get 12 egg whites? ... separating eggs is not an easy task. Ever needed cake flour before? Take a cup of all purpose flour, take out 2 TBS of that flour, put back in 2 TBS of corn starch. Simple as that!! NEAT, HUH??! Did you know that it take 30 mins, 2 have something become "room temperature"? I really did learn a whole bunch from this homemade baking recipe. SO FUN, not sure I will be  making another angel food cake a while ...but fun all the same. You see an …

Lake Norman State Park, North Carolina

"Lake Norman State Park", North Carolina. When I am putting up this post 3/18/017 to publish on 5/1/2017 ... they are controlled burning there at Lake Norman, I always wonder why they don't that more around different parts of states that have issues with burning problems, seems smart if you know what you are doing, etc. A great state park, very cold while we were there, so pretty. Great for tents. Not so much for folks who need their van, RV or whatever level. We had a nightmare of a time getting ours level. So wild!!
When we go kayaking I always wear these shoes that are great for walking on rocks and other slippery surfaces, I 1st wore them when we went to The Narrows in Zion National Park, Utah. Such a great item!! But this day I wore them at Lake Norman I seriously got stuck in the mud while trying to get into my kayak, I hate taking dirt into my kayak 'cause then you have to clean out your kayak.... & draining water from your kayak is not the easiest task ev…
